Player Overview

Former cornerback with athleticism and ball skills (13 career interceptions) Boston impresses with his energetic, hard-hitting style and ball-hawking ability.

He's still very raw in terms of his instincts in coverage, and could probably use a couple of years sitting behind experienced safeties at the next level, but his ceiling is certainly high enough to merit a draft selection, and he has the potential to be a regular down the line.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Looks the part of an NFL safety with a chiseled physique and good overall athleticism. Highly physical defender who attacks the line of scrimmage in run support, demonstrating aggressive hands and impressive upper body strength to take on and shed blocks, as well as impressive closing speed and the willingness to throw his body into the pile. Fluid athlete who accelerates smoothly. Times his leaps well to highpoint 50-50 balls, showing strong hands to pluck and secure quickly. Former cornerback who could just be scratching the surface of his potential.

WEAKNESSES: Isn't the some of his parts due to the fact that he takes false steps. Doesn't trust what he sees and instead bounces back and forth indecisively, putting him in tough position to make plays on the ball. Comes in out of control in run support, at times, leaving cut-back lanes for savvy runners to exploit.
